December 2020

With the general maintenance now in full swing, we have started on the major project for the winter months. While we are not able to obtain the real item, we have started work on a replica Firestreak missile. Once complete it will be installed on the weapons pack.

As for the aircraft herself, the normal winter checks are taking place regularly, checking for water leaks and general wear and tear. To date, we are pleased to say, she is holding well against the weather.

October 2020

With the summer cut short due to the Covid-19 virus, we took the decision to have an extended winter maintenance period to catch up on a few odd jobs.

The first of those jobs to be completed was to make a new intake blank to replace the temporary metal one that was in place. Next up was starting on the anti-corrosion treatment of the internal airframe. This will be an ongoing task over her life span to reduce/stop any corrosion due to the salt air.
